of wayne lapierre and the national rifle association that makes gun advocates like diane feinstein, to say it will be an uphill battle. >> they come after you, they put together large amounts of money to defeat you. >> reporter: but he is on a mission to convince his colleagues. >> we need to wake members up to the fact if they want to do the right thing and join us on gun reform, there is not a political referendum like maybe a decade or two ago. >> reporter: during the 2010 campaign, the nra flooded the area with ads regarding guns, and sherrod brown, and figures for the nonresponsive politics shows that the nra spent over $4 million on the senate campaigns, losing seven out of eight races where they spent over $100,000. money is not the only way to measure influence. >> i think that the nra as a single issue group, is extremely potent as a political force out there. and even though their success rate was less than 50% with their outside spending in the last election, they have these members, millions of members they can mobilize who are strongly motivated on this issue. >> reporter: man
it to the first contest. few others contemplated running. she never took any real steps to run. diane feinstein dropped hints at a future white house bid on her mind in the late 1980s only to then lose the governors race to pete wilson in 1990. instead of running for the top job in 1992, feinstein was left to settle for a senate seat, a seat she has been happy to keep since then. and that is really it as far as female prospects for the democratic prospect. until 2008 when hillary clinton won 18 million votes and a bunch of primaries and caucuses. where she lost to a black man who went on to win the white house and defeated a republican ticket that included a woman. excuse me. it included a woman. in the wake of all of that, the notion that the terms presidential prospect in white guy went happened in hand to feel antiquated. the clear front runner
. >> what do you make of his point and many who are critical of what senator dianne feinstein has proposed, over the fact that we do have hundreds if not thousands of lawses on the books already. >> it's a legitimate point. they are not being forced. i asked markicle bethat, who is a big supporter of gun control. he said, i would like to see them enforced. he is not saying that everything the nra is saying is wrong. remember, this is a retired navy captain. me and gabrielle giffords had and have guns. but he says, that doesn't solve a lot of the problems. i thought this was one of the revelations, i don't think they have much of a chance of getting an assault weapons ban. there is a growing realization, it is not going to happen on capitol hill this year. i think there is much more of a support and push and chance for a element on the size of magazines and especially for an expansion of the background check. and the polls indicate, a lot of nra number members support the idea, with a history of mental illness, and if there is a criminal record, there should be a limit. the person who shot
feinstein's assault weapons ban legislation, but top senate democrat harry reid sounds cautious about feinstein's proposal. >> she's talked to me about her assault weapons ban, a new one, and she believes in it fervently and i admire her for that. i'll take at that look at it. and we will all kinds of issues to deal with and i think everyone would be well-advised to determine how to read it. >> other tough votes on fiscal issues such as taxes and spending. house speaker john boehner, a republican says the process isn't easy. >> frankly, there's a lot of scar tissue that carries over with a lot of these bills, it's tough for congress to figure out where the common ground is. >> so the challenge for harry reid balancing loyalty to president obama and looking out for members who are on the ballot in 2014. >> alisyn: that's a tough dance or a boxing match if i'm going to use the harry reid analogy, thanks, mike. also, developing this hour, new reaction from the white house, growing concern over the president's policies that allowed drone strikes on u.s. citizens comes in the wake after re
automatically and guns t banned under dianne feinstein's law. when the department of homeland security uses them they are used in self-defense. but when i want to use it's considered, i do. >> sean: first of all, it's none of your business. i'm a shooter and that is why i look it. you said a gun is not your best option? >> no. >> sean: so a shooter comes in here. what are you going to do? are you going to grab scissors? >> i'm going to try to exit as quickly as possible. i think the bottom line you are more likely to be shot by law enforcement that arrives on the scene and don't know that you are a bystander and actual shooter. in tucson someone arrived with a gun.... >> sean: do you know how silly this sounds. if you can't get behind a desk and you can't call 911 and if you can't go to where the shooter is, treating like you are in kindergarten. then they are saying use a scissors. then we're going to use scissors. that is ridiculous. >> your keys will be locked in your desk. why do the department of homeland security that it's a great weapon for self-defense but not a great defense for regular
group on the senate intelligence committee, not the chair, dianne feinstein who we'll be talking to tomorrow. but ron widen is asking this question and down at the retreat in annapolis, he told our own mike viqueira, every american has the right to know when their government believes that it is allowed to kill them. >> you know, this is an issue that puts president obama at odds with his base. when he came into the white house, he was very critical of the bush administration for waterboarding, for enhanced -- he called for more transparency. the administration has not been transparent. it's only because of a leak that we know as much as we do about the targeting of american, how it's done, when it's allowed. and that's why we're going to have a discussion about this and that's also why it does not imperil brennan's nomination. because the people who are most distressed about there are part of the core democratic groups that are going to vote with the president i think when it comes to john brennan. but it is an opportunity to have a conversation that we have not had yet. >> and o
remove that woman. >> senator feinstein -- [indiscernible] >> please proceed. mr. brennan, the next time we will clear the chamber and bring people back in one by one. this witness is entitled to be heard, ladies and gentlemen, so please give him that opportunity. >> thank you. a thank you ghost of my family in new jersey, especially my --ndmomother [indiscernible] >> alright, which are run to halt the hearing. i am gone to ask that the room be cleared and that the code pink associates not be permitted to come back in. it has been done five times now, and five times is enough. so we will recess for a few minutes. [applause] [indiscernible] all right. ladies and gentlemen, if you would mind leaving, we will then have you come back in, but it is the only way i think we are going to stop this. we will recess for a few minutes. [indiscernible] john? john? [indiscernible] [indiscernible] left [indiscernible] >> ok, we will reconvene the hearing. mr. brennan, please proceed. >> thank you. i was talking about my parents. , my father, who raised my sister, brother, and i, chairs the opportunity
the bill that senator feinstein just recently introduced grandfathers in all the existing assault type of weapons so it will be a while before you see any impact. a majority of homicides that we have at least here in philadelphia and from chiefs around the country that i've spoken to, predominantly handguns, semiautomatic handguns, nine millimetre being the one that we recover most often. so there has to be a combination of things. there is no one thing that can be done that's going to have an impact. the bottom line is we need decent laws, reasonable laws in place, maybe inconvenient to some folks that have to, you know, go through background checks even with private sales, but it's something that we have to do to make sure that the guns are not falling into the wrong hands. reporting a gun lost or stolen, to me, another reasonable thing that i believe would definitely help us in law enforcement. and then really going after the people that are out here committing crimes, using a handgun, using assault weapons. it doesn't matter what they use. once they're caught and convicted they nee
slammed harry reid for saying he hadn't read dianne feinstein's bill banning assault weapons. >> how can harry reid, a fellow democrat, and i'm willing to criticize him, say he hasn't read the bill. this is an emergency. let's knock off the washington baloney and support the president and get some things done. >> the white house wants to overload washington's political circuits. an effort to see what it can get through congress without letting congress and particularly congressional republicans, define what issues get addressed. republican leaders are making it clear they prefer to talk about just one thing before the march budget shutdown. >> this was supposed to be the day that the president submitted his budget to the congress. but it's not coming. i think that's too bad. our economy could use some presidential leadership right now. >> and top senate republican mitch mcconnell was just as eager to talk budget hitting the floor to slam democrats for floating new revenue proposals. >> this is just another opportunity to trot out the democrat focus group approved policy stunt. if this is
calling for the original justice department memo to be released senate intelligence chair dianne feinstein suggested full transparency has already been achieved, quote. i have been calling for the public release of the administration's legal analysis of the use of lethal force, particularly against u.s. citizens, for more than a year. that analysis is now public, and the american people can review and judge the legality of these operations. the bottom line is that the white house doesn't steam have much of a political problem with the public. the public is intent to go after the bad guys, if you will, regardless of the concerns of a slippery slope, and unless the public begins to share in the outrage, congress may not show it, but it's amazing that one of the three branches of government doesn't want to know why it does not have oversight over this executive branch policy. >>> finally, the reason we're here in chicago today. last night i sat down with the brain trust of the obama and the romney campaigns. eight of the top advisers, all in one room at the university of chicago's institute o
, dianne feinstein, eventually cleared the room. later, brennan cited the protesters when he addressed what he called a misperception about the goal of the drone strikes. let's listen. >> i think there is a misimpression on the part of some american people who believe that we take strikes to punish terrorists for past transgressions. nothing could be further from the truth. we only take such actions as a last resort to save lives when there's no other alternative to taking an action that's going to mitigate that threat. so we need to make sure there is an understanding, and the people that were standing up here today, i think they really have a misunderstanding of what we do as a government and the care that we take and the agony that we go through to make sure that we do not have any collateral injuries or deaths. >> robin, when he described this as a last resort to save lives, one reaction i had is, among the lives we save when we use drones are those of troops who otherwise would be going into harm's way. >> absolutely. i lived in beirut when jesse jackson had to hold his nose and go to
and feinstein suggested if they could get everything registered they could have forced buy back. which i know you own the shotgun, now you're going sell it to the government. that's confiscation. in modern times there are two other reasons why we don't want the federal registry. one took place in new york. where somebody got ahold of the list of licensed owners and published it and the results have been not good. the other one is -- doing the same thing. there was a time when assume the best of motives on the part of the government. they could take a list and lock it in the vault and be secure. we can't secure national defense secrets now. the odds are if we kept the registry. it's illegal now. if you go through the dicks system, they can check you but they can't keep the record. because it's checked and there's no gun registry. candidate imposed a big registry that would abolished because it costs billions of dollars and didn't do anything. back in the '60s between '60s and '80s people had to keep track of ammunition sales and the government said this is makes no sense because ammunition is
of these measures whether it's the one by senator dianne feinstein or others who are not viewed as restrictive what do you is you stall and you hope. the senate is good at doing. is not doing stuff. the hope for senate majority leader reid and other nra backed or progun democrats in the u.s. senate is play for time, have this work itself out. we see the bipartisan offer from joe manchin democrat from pennsylvania and republican from illinois background checks that you hope that some compromise position emerges. you can take ahold of that and get away from the issue. because i am sure that harry reid, ahead of having so many red state democrats up for re-election in 2014, is he not interested in doing a gun ban of any kind. i can't think that he would be because it would be so bad for some of his members and chances for remaining majority member. we are looking at the president departing from air force one arriving in minneapolis. it looks like he has both of the senators from the state with him. as he arrives there to begin the discussion about gun control, let me ask you, since we are talking abou
democrat dianne feinstein has completed a 6,000-page classified report into the cia program. those familiar with the report's findings tell fox news concludes the agency lied about the program's effectiveness, a charge denied by those who ran the program. a leading human rights group believes brennan must explain whether he agrees with the report's findings. >> i haven't seen the study so it is difficult to talk about it because it is over 6,000 mains long but it is classified. senator wyden, a member of the committee who has seen the study, says it appears the cia did mislead congress and the white house about the cia interrogation program. we don't know whether or not it was effective. we don't know about the full scope of it. how many people were in the program? how long the program answered? these are really key issues that need to be answered. >> reporter: a former senior intelligence official told fox news if in fact mr. brennan agreed with the report's findings it will be virtually impossible for him to lead the agency workforce in the words of this official, he should just save the
example. senator feinstein's subcommittee -- she had a hearing last year. general cartwright and admiral pickering -- or ambassador pickering testified, and they went into this. any action we would take would have to be negotiated, it would have to be bilateral, no unilateral action, and they made that point again on the record in front of senator feinstein's subcommittee. and i support that. i agree with that. >> i have another statement from the report. the united states icbm rapid reaction posture remains in operation and runs a real risk of accidental or mistaken launch. i think that statement is pretty clear. do you agree with that? >> yes. i mean, i the accidental launch and those kinds of things are always to be concerned about, and we need to assure as we have over the years that that does not happen, but on the russian -- >> that we will run a real risk of accident or mistaken launch? >> if you put just "risk," but there's always a risk. when we are talking about nuclear weapons, and the consequences, as you know, you do not get a lot of second chances. we need to be very sure a
cuomo and senator feinstein suggested they could just have everything registered means they could have a forced by back i do you own that they will sell it to a government which is confiscation. but there are other reasons why we did not want the federal registry, one is where somebody in new york with they got the list of owners and results have not been good. there was a time assume all the best motives of the government, they could lock in the vault but we cannot even check your -- superior national defense secrets, if you go through the system they can check you but they cannot keep the record because it is checked. canada imposed a registry that they just abolished because it costs millions of dollars in did not do anything. between the '60s and '80s they had to keep track of the ignition and they finally said it makes no sense. ammunition is a commodity with tens of paperwork. so what works and what doesn't? >> you mentioned democrats better members of your organization it seems maybe the most prominent is harry reid. or maybe at one point* for my kid you characterize your relati
think the hardest sell on the hill right now will be senator feinstein's all-out assault weapons ban she's introduced. that's going to be a hard sell to those conservative democrats who are up for re-election in 2014, senators like mark baggage of alaska, max baucus of montana. that's going to be the hardest sell. universal background checks i think is where the consensus is building, although the senate judiciary hearing on tuesday or wednesday, one of the things that happened was that the national rifle association said that is not something that they can get behind. so you know, they're definitely going to be scoring those votes. i think it's going to be a harder sell than maybe folks originally thought when it comes to universal background checks. >> let's take a look at what's happening in massachusetts. lauren, scott scott brown saying he's not going to run for the senate seat opened up by john kerry. wasn't that the best hope republicans had to get that seat? >> a poll came out showing he had a slight lead on the democrat's candidate, ed marquee. i think he really was one of the b
guns. have you looked at the feinstein bill? that is exactly what he has done. i think of what they will do is turn this universal check on the law-abiding into a universal registry of law-abiding people, law abiding people do not want that. >> forgive me, sir, you take something that is here and say that it will go all the way over there. there is no indication. i can understand that you are saying that that is the threat, but nothing from the -- but nothing from the administration indicates that. >> obama care was not a tax until they needed to be a tax. >> that was the supreme court. host: weighing in on the conversation, the financial crisis, did it delay your retirement? on twitter you can participate as well. host: let's hear from sandra in virginia. hello. caller: i am the wife of a retired pastor. he is not retired, we cannot retire. because when the crash happened, we received notice from our retirement fund that in order for them to serve everyone, they were going to cut everyone, so we got a cut from 2100 per month to 1600 per month. my husband has to continue workin
